Bunting - repost

Hi to my fellow bloggers,  I have been MIA for a couple of months, not that I have not been following your posts, but I have had a break from serious card making, blame it on my Silhouette Cameo.  I have been on a huge learning curve with this wonderful machine and every time I log on to make a card I get distracted with all the great cutting files and projects which can be achieved with this machine.

Today I am posting a couple of projects I have been trying out.  We have new neighbours a couple of door down from us, I know Jackie and her girls as they lived in another part of the village.  The girls, Connie aged 5 and Tilly 6 months have just had their bedrooms decorated and I thought I would make some bunting for their walls.

This is Connie's

This is Tilly's

I used cutting files I bought for the Cameo and card that I have accumulated over the years, pearls and ribbon, quite effective I think.  You may have to zoom in on the pictures to see the Gingham dresses.

Photos are best I can get with the size of the bunting but Jackie and Connie are well impressed, Tilly has no choice being so young.

Hopefully now I have posted this today I may get back to card making, which I do enjoy doing.  I have been buying loads of things to make cards so I better use it before Hubby has a fit.  Every time he pokes his head in my craft room or I get a delivery he says and when will this be used then?  I have told him it will be a long winter and I will make inroads when the weather changes.  My excuse and I am sticking to it.

We had a wee holiday at Stonehaven a couple of weeks ago with the caravan and the weather was great for most of the time, I came home with a sun tan.  Hubby, the dogs and me what a nice break, my mum stayed with my youngest sister and it was a break from me for her too.  As she gets older the more immobile she gets and it hard work being with her 24/7 having to do so much for her.  Not that I am complaining but it did me good to have some time away.

As always I look forward to seeing all your beautiful creations and feel honoured that you take the time to look and comment on my post.  Take care.

  1. Hi Wilma
    Lovely to have you back chuck. How fabulous are these buntings? What lucky young ladies they are to have these beauties decorating their rooms.
    Glad you have had a nice break and I look forward to seeing what else you have been creating.

  2. hi Wilma, lovely to see you posting again..
    love the bunting you have made, those girls will love it I`m sure.

  3. Such fantastic bunting Wilma. A friend recently gave me a Craft Robo and I am having an awful time getting it to cut through the card. I have bought a new blade and a new carrier sheet but still only parts of the files cut out. You obviously have no problem with your machine. This is really lovely.

  4. Good Morning Wilma, great to see a post from you.
    The girls will treasure their Buntings
    Glad you enjoyed your break, sounds like you got better weather in Stonehaven than we got in Turkey
    Have a great day
